Ausserdem führte Max Weinberg mit dem Newsobserver ein Interview:


Taking his big beats to a big band
Q: Is doing a Big Band tour a lifelong dream?
A: It was certainly something I had dabbled with on television. It’s something that I still do from time to time. It’s the final date of our winter tour. That’ll be it for awhile. These guys are great. Todd Bashore, our alto sax man, his family is from the Chapel Hill. It’ll be special for him and for the people to check out a 15-piece band that’s a swinging muscular band. It’s a roadhouse-barreling-freight-train of a swing band.
